Welcome to Year 5 Rossetti Class

In Year 5 we are often called upon for extra roles and responsibilities in school, being in upper KS2, especially when Year 6 isn’t around!

One of our main responsibilities in Year 5 is to run the ‘Tasty Tuck’ shop which the school council established. We sell Tasty Tuck every Tuesday and Thursday break times for 50p. We are in charge of the money and keeping track of the stock. This gives us the opportunity to practise our numeracy skills as well as gaining experience of what it might be like to run a business. The rest of the school enjoy it too!

As Year 5 pupils, we also have the opportunity to spend time with our Year 1 buddies. We share stories with them, play games where we have to read the instructions and do art and craft activities encouraging them to develop their reading and speaking and listening skills. This also gives us the chance to improve our reading across a variety of texts and to share books with different audiences.

Learning at home

In class 5, you can support your child’s learning by:  

  • Practising daily reading and comprehension skills; this could be discussing the text, looking at the layout and features relating to that particular genre or just sharing a good book. Asking children questions about the book is extremely important for developing a deeper knowledge of what they are reading.
  • Keeping on top of the times tables, once the facts are mastered, can they be recalled in any order and at speed? Children can access different times table activities on Times Table Rockstars.
